Australia
The intrigue of Australia draws many travelers down under. While this continent is notoriously difficult to reach, there is so much to explore once you arrive. The two main cities of Sydney and Melbourne offer a variety of urban pleasures from dining to nightlife to culture such as the symphony. Australia is perhaps known just as well for its beaches and surf culture as it is for its cities. From the Gold Coast to the Sunshine Coast there are endless beaches that will make you want to adopt a more relaxed approach to life. Don’t forget about the fascinating wildlife that you can encounter in Australia – many visitors say a highlight of heading down under is the chance to see a kangaroo up close and personal. If you’re interested in scuba diving, don’t miss the chance to see the Great Barrier Reef with your own eyes.
